Pre-Wired Guitar wiring harness | Mustang kit | Right Handed
I usually make harnesses to order, due to the variety of spec options that could be chosen across the whole range. The turnaround time for a harness orders is around 3 working days depending on quantity of orders in at the time and your order will be updated accordingly when it is dispatched. This turnaround time doesn't include the transit time. Thanks for your patience whilst I get your harness made!
The Mustang offers players a great deal of versatility due to it's clever yet simple slide switches, and ease of playability due to it's small body and short scale length. A fantastic guitar made popular by a number of players, perhaps most notably Indie and Grunge musicians such as Thurston Moore, Kurt Cobain, John Frusciante, Bilinda Butcher and many more. This harness is a faithful recreation of the traditional circuit, with the best quality parts available to help get the best out of your pickups and guitar in general. The schematic follows the traditional switching options, with an on/off for each pickup as well as an phase positions for additional tones.
I have intended for my wiring harnesses to be as simple as possible to install to your Mustang as well as a simple to follow wiring diagram.
The parts I use, in particular the pots, are CTS branded pots which are imperial measurements. If you will need to drill out the holes in the control plate and pickguard when fitting this harness
For reference, the CTS pots I use in this harness have a shaft diameter of 9.52mm.
You may also require new control knobs to fit the CTS pot 'spline diameters. I offer an option of either solid or split shaft pots for this harness depending on the style of control knobs you intend to use. The Solid shaft pots have a measurement of 6.35mm and the split shaft have a measurement of 5.95mm(adjustable) 24 spline.
If you do require a US spec control plate or control knobs, we do carry a selection of popular options in stock and they can be viewed in the hardware & plastic hardware categories on the store.
Due to how the Mustang body is routed, this harness comes supplied in two sections, the upper switch section, and the lower pots section. The wires need feeding through the bodies wire channel then soldering the final two connections when in situ. This is shown in the wiring diagram and wires are clearly marked by their colour coding, black for ground, off-white for the signal connection to the volume pot input lug.
